Vladimir Kara-Murza, a Global Opinions contributor to The Post, is a Russian politician, author and historian. He holds Russian and British passports and settled his family in the United States. He has been an outspoken critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin


Opposition International advocates for the release of Mr. Kara-Murza despite the knowledge such pleas go unheard. More actions while they may little help still send a signal of solidarity in VKM’s struggle for democracy over autocracy. He is the Opposition’s greatest champion in 100 years of Russian history.
